WNC athletics fundraiser is Saturday
Tickets are selling fast for the Western Nevada College athletics fund-raiser featuring Boston Red Sox Second Baseman Dustin Pedroia. More than 700 supporters of Wildcats baseball and softball have already secured their seats at the dinner fund-raiser on Saturday, Jan. 16, but some tickets are still available until Thursday, Jan. 14, at 5 p.m. for $75, or a table of 10 for $750. Call 445-3240.
The event at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno will include a prime rib dinner, live music, hosted wine/beer, and silent/live auctions.
At age 26, Pedroia has already earned all of baseball's most prestigious awards: American League Rookie of the Year in 2007 and Most Valuable Player in 2008. His fielding skills have earned him a Golden Glove Award and a place on the All-Star Team. Pedroia's hitting earned him a Silver Slugger Award for best offensive player at his position in the league. He is one of the few career .300 hitters in baseball.
Pedroia, who grew up near Sacramento, also spent two summers playing American Amateur Baseball in Carson City as a 17 and 18-year-old before earning a scholarship to Arizona State University. Welcome back, Dustin.
